Sad but true... The staff do not seem to realize that they are supposed to be role models for the children and not correction officers. There is a big diffrence between stern tone and a disrespectful attitude. I'm highly dissapointed and I am sorry for anyone who has to be subject to these people. ...  Read more

My daughter transferred into this school for her 4th grade year, and then we left again.

The school could do more at promoting parental involvement. You have to jump through hoops to volunteer at your childs school. Parental involvement is crucial to a students success. I guess they never heard of that!

But I can honestly say that if you desire this school I ...  Read more

My children has attended this school for two years. I am very concerned as the teachers do not communicate often enough with parents about their childs grades. The teachers do not return telephone calls nor do they answer emails in a timely fashion.

There are too many female teachers. The principal and one of the assistant principal's are female. There is a dire need for more male role models at the school. The school mainly focuses on discipline. I felt that the main focus should be learning the basics of academics so that the students could ...  Read more

My kindergartner and 2nd grader have been enrolled for 2 days. I have already felt the need to schedule a conference. Neither teacher invited me in to see the classroom's nor did they request my name. My girls transferred due to us purchasing a new home . So far I am less then pleased I hope that things ...  Read more
